Debra Berens' Profile
Hi I'm Debra, I've been embroidering for about 15 years now. I'm fully self taught, I learnt from lots and lots of books and practiced and practiced. It must be in the blood though because I have since learnt that my late grandmother was an exceptional embroiderer. I love the idea of creating something that can't be bought in a shop and can be handed down from generation to generation, embroidery is such a wonderful art for this. I think of it as colouring in with thread.
All the items I make are individual and no two are alike. I'm still learning everyday and try new techniques all the time. I'm a full time working mother so what I make is for pleasure and I make it with love and time and care.
Embroidery is not the only craft I dabble in I knit,...
